dad wasn't, but my mother was a little prejudice. you know, arkansas and texas. i never spentand -- i mean, we never picked up on that. so i don't know. when you say you did your own job about that, she knew how i felt. but she could have gone the other way. who knows? but she had that love of humanity. i love when she said "i don't know why people, when they enter a room, don't smile enough. because when you do that, the whole world opens up to you. i can honestly say i feel joy on a daily basis." that was who she was. tavis: how does a mother process having a daughter asked her to finish her work? that is an admission that i won't make it. >>) yet. -- right. yep. i wanted to be able to say to her i would do it. but i had to be honest. as i say, her request had been a burden until they figured out, you know, we can do even more , by letting showing the reader in on who carrie was rather than just finishing her story, which is in this -- interesting in its own. so once i got the key of how to do this, i just started on my computer. i write on the computer. i swear, i felt her on my ri

in an ihop in texas earning $2.13 an hour, graveyard shift, no tips. the company's supposed to make up the difference between 2:13 and $7.25. but time and time again, that doesn't happen. and when a slow night happens, and you don't earn anything, or very little in tips, you often can't pay the rent. and i guarantee you in every restaurant in america there's at least one person who's on the verge of homelessness or being evicted or going through some kind of instability. it's an incredible irony that the people that who put food on our tables use food stamps at twice the rate of the rest of the us workforce. meaning that the people who put food on our tables can't afford to put food on their own families' tables. the other key issue that we find that workers face is the lack of paid sick days and healthcare benefits. two-thirds of all workers report cooking, preparing, and serving food when they're ill, with the flu or other sicknesses. and with a wage as little as $2.13, so reliant on tips for their wages, these workers simply cannot afford to take a day off when sick, let alone risk
